It’s becoming a formality that events are being cancelled all around the world due to COVID-19 (coronavirus) and now parades are no exception.

The organizers for St. Patrick’s Day Parade have announced that it’s cancelling the event due to health concerns and interests of the public.

“While we are disappointed that our annual parade will not take place our belief is that public health and safety must come first,” said Shaun Ruddy, one of the chairpersons for the St. Patrick’s Parade Society. “We would like to wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick’s Day, and look forward to seeing the public at our future events.”

The parade was originally scheduled to take place on March 15, 2020.
